The 2 cards below are both CASEd from the 2008-09 Idea Book and Catalogue. The first one uses the hostess set "A Little Bit of Happiness". In the catalogue this card was actually a bag but I made some alterations - as you do. The cardstock is Bordering Blue, Groovy Guava and River Rock - I love it! I stamped the leaf image on Whisper White with Basic Black and watercoloured it using the Aqua Painter and Ink pads - Close to Cocoa, Groovy Guava and Mellow Moss. I only recieve the double-stitched ribbon this week and I'm already loving it. This ribbon is Groovy Guava. I just had to pierce along the top and bottom of the main image - it really finishes it off, I think. This second card uses another hostess set - In the Spotlight. It is so versatile! The card base is textured Whisper White. I made my own "printed paper" using Purely Pomegranate, Blue Bayou and Old Olive cardstock and ink. It is so easy to do. The large flower is stamped in More Mustard (I really like this colour combination) with a smaller Purely Pomegranate folwer and Blue Bayou "hello" circle layered on top. The ribbon is Purely Pomegranate double-stitched, of course! The original card included Hodgepodge Hardware and brads which I didn't bring with me so I didn't use them.
